Important Note about Parking —

Limited parking is available at the Lunar and Planetary Institute, so meeting participants are asked to car pool from their hotels. A rideshare bulletin board has been provided for you to communicate with other attendees for this purpose. (Note that the bulletin board is located within the Meeting Portal, so users will need to log into the Portal in order to view the available listings or post a message.)

Lunch —

Conference participants are on their own for lunch.

Participants who are interested can order boxed lunches each day from Jason’s Deli as part of a group order. The cost for a boxed lunch (consisting of a sandwich, chips, cookie, and soft drink) is $11.00. Sandwich selections and payment (cash only, exact change required) must be turned in at the registration desk each morning by 9:00 a.m. to be included with the group order. A minimum of ten (10) orders will be required for delivery.

For those choosing to go out for lunch, there are a number of restaurants within driving distance from the Lunar and Planetary Institute.
